We are happy to report that most programs and services offered by the Brattleboro Retreat continue to serve the mental health and addiction needs of patients and clients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Coronavirus has demanded some changes that will need to remain in place until public health officials are confident the pandemic is over. For the time being, please take note of the following:
- Outpatient psychotherapy and addiction treatment programs are open and are relying almost exclusively on telehealth video conferencing and telephone therapy sessions. These programs include the Anna Marsh Clinic, Starting Now (addiction treatment), Mind Body Pain Management Program, and the Virtual IOP/PHP Program (mental health and substance use challenges virtual day programming).
- The Retreat's HUB program for opioid addiction remains open, and has instituted new prescribing protocols for buprenorphine that eliminates the need to come to our HUB offices to receive daily dosing.
- Our inpatient programs for children, adolescents, and adults remain open. For the time being, however, we are only admitting residents from the state of Vermont.
- The Retreat's Uniformed Service Program has closed temporarily.
If you have question or would like more information about receiving mental health and substance abuse at the Brattleboro Retreat, please call 1-800-RETREAT.
